Some days you might feel like having a casual meal right in your own neighborhood. Little Deli & Pizzeria is a neighborhood spot, located in the heart of Crestview, where groups come together over a slice of pizza.

The restaurant opened in 1992, building its popularity on great sandwiches made with fresh bread baked daily and high quality meats and cheeses. In 2009, under new ownership, a pizza kitchen was added. The New Jersey style pizza is made with homemade and hand tossed dough.

Sandwiches make up the bulk of the menu with hot and cold varieties. On our visit, we tried  Harry’s Perfect Pastrami, made with a half pound of pastrami and fresh coleslaw. The half size was still a very hearty serving. Aside from classic sandwiches, you’ll also find a section of  Italian subs served on fresh hoagie rolls. 

Pizza offerings come in two whole sizes, a 14-inch medium pie and an 18-inch large pie, or by the slice. We took an order of the Bacon Blue pizza, which features bacon, gorgonzola, and roasted red peppers. With a thin crust that’s soft and slightly chewy, pizza options include out of the ordinary toppings that still make for approachable slices.

Pizza done right, casual and classic

The menu also includes salads, calzones, desserts, and daily soups, which can be seen online. Overall, this is a great place for classic and casual Italian style deli food. 

Located in a shopping center in the middle of the neighborhood, there’s plenty of parking on site and in the street. If you live in Crestview, taking a stroll or a bike ride to the restaurant is no problem. The interior has very limited seating but there’s plenty of picnic tables outside. Fall is the perfect time to enjoy an evening outdoors in Austin. Little Deli is also one of those rare spots that allows you to BYOB. 

Be sure to make some time in your fall schedule to check out this no frills neighborhood joint.
